CPI Goes for the Gold in IT Infrastructure Storage
July 25, 2012
It’s been four years in the making, but the London 2012 Summer Olympic Games have finally arrived. And while we’ve already told you about the impressive tech behind this year’s event, it’s now time to witness the spectacle of the Opening Ceremonies and watch the Olympic flame burn bright for the next two weeks.
In the midst of all this hoopla, we can’t help but wonder… just how would Chatsworth Products, Inc. (CPI) fare in a competition to determine the world’s best IT infrastructure storage?
In any race to the finish line, you’re going to need a clear path to victory. In the data center, that race is won with a well-planned, well-maintained and highly efficient network of cable pathway support systems.
For those who value speed, CPI Cable Runway and the recently updated OnTrac® Wire Mesh Cable Tray expertly handle high volumes of high bandwidth cabling at the point of entry and exit into any telecom or equipment room… even those spaces with obvious hurdles such as sprinkler systems in the ceiling! Our runway and tray are flexible enough to cut, bend and adjust to any obstacle with a few simple splices.
It takes brains and brawn to successfully hold your own in today’s high tech world. Thankfully, CPI’s complete line of cabinets and enclosure systems are built solid to withstand even the densest of data centers. That includes our TeraFrame® Family of Cabinets, constructed of welded steel and able to hold up to 3,000 lb (1360 kg) static load. Not to be outdone, the GF-Series GlobalFrame® packs a 3,000 lb (1360 kg) load rating too!
Talk about two powerhouses – these cabinet solutions don’t even mind the heat, both sporting the ability to be configured with Vertical Exhaust Ducts when they need to let off some steam – or in this case, the detrimental hot exhaust air from the computer equipment they excel at housing.
In the dog days of summer, a dip in the pool is a great way to keep cool, not to mention a pretty nifty method for earning yourself a record eight gold medals if you’re U.S. swimming superstar Michael Phelps. But everyone knows computer equipment and water just don’t mix, which is why CPI’s Remote Infrastructure Management (RIM-600) System gives you the ability to remotely monitor, record and analyze environmental security and safety conditions in the data center. That includes keeping a close watch on temperature, humidity, smoke, motion, and definitely water.
So how’d we do?! Good enough to medal? Stand atop the podium? Set a few new world records along the way? Tell us what you think of CPI products when the going gets tough and the tough need new data center storage!
